I'm looking for realworld solutions. Running PD as a userspace driver is
not a good solution.

Reading events from the Linux input event device is really easy, writing
midi to alsa rawmidi ports is really easy. PD is good for testing, but
it's not a viable solution for realworld use. 

What people (and I) want is an icon on a menu which can be doubleclicked
to get the preferences dialog out.
 (At least I think this is what people want .. :) )

The OSC looks interesting, but if Ardour doesn't support it, I don't see
any point in sending OSC and then converting it to a different format
with a second program.
